As the title says, I sold my Hellcat . The reasons are not important, but is interesting.

On July 1st, I ordered a new 1320 without a final value for my Hellcat, which I was trading. I've been friends with the GM of the dealership, so I was't really concerned. However, for whatever reason, he is a little concerned about the HC market and the used market in general. We just couldn't get together on a trade that made us both happy. I still wasn't worried....I still had a HC.

Last Saturday, I called the dealership in La Grande, OR, just to test the waters and see what they might be willing to pay for the HC. We have a second home there, so I thought what the heck, I'll just see. I gave them the the VIN and 5 minutes later they called back and offered me $73,000' my first thought was, "Well, that's gonna work!"

Now I know that doesn't sound like much to you guys that have 90K JB cars, but mine was the proverbial "Poverty Pack" that I bought last fall. I bought the car right and this gave me several thousand dollars in my pocket after my OTD price in Dec. I was very pleased. The sales manager told me he a customer for the car and hoped it would be gone by last Sunday.

We picked up the check for the car today and the HC is now in the showroom. I guess whomever he had on the car wasn't as interested as he though. But really makes me wonder what the HC market will be in a small town in NE Oregon when the snow flies?

I really hate to see the HC go. It is my opinion the HC family of cars are the greatest pure muscle cars ever built.

For those of you who have one, drive the snot out of it....that's what they are for. For those of you waiting....it is well worth the agony of the wait.

I have to believe the price the dealer paid you for your car -- as nice as it was I'm sure -- is going to prove to be something of a mistake for the dealer......
Could very well be true.

Well, the reason IS important. It's like skipping the opening line of, "Two guys walk into a bar........." 😁
It's been a rough year in the stock market for me and the money for the Hellcat sitting in the garage bothered me. I just decided to see if the Hellcat market was still strong. Apparently it is in NE Oregon.

The market also seems to be making a 'bit" of a recovery, so the feeling of being "bothered" by financial issues is going away.

Just an update....my car has apparently sold. It is no longer listed on their website, so I'm assuming it's gone. I guess they pretty much have an idea what their market is.

I'm pleased with the money they paid me for the car and I'm also certain they made good money on the car, which makes both of us happy! I hope the new owner enjoys the car as much as I did.

It does seem to prove once again that, "There's a butt for every seat!"

Well, well, the Scat Pack that I ordered on July 1 arrived today. I've decided not to take it and a friend of mine decided to buy it, but it took less than 6 weeks from order to delivery. That is pretty dang quick.

They seem to be building N/A models much more quickly. I ordered the new 1320 on 8/5. It went to D1 on 8/6, and according to the tracking site it went into production on 8/12. My original 1320, which I did not take only took 7 days to get here once it was released from the factory. This car may be here late this week, if it follows what occurred with the white 1320. We'll see I guess.
